Assisting people with developmental disabilities to find meaningful employment in the general workforce can be daunting. This online and in-person series will explore why a regular job in the community is a priority. Concrete ideas for how the current day support system can increase employment outcomes will be offered.
The goal of the series is to increase awareness about employment, and to provide a discussion forum for families, individuals, organizations and professionals in the field.
Lanterman Regional Center will be a host site for this series of online lectures exploring employment for people with developmental disabilities. These presentations will give participants a chance to share new ideas and discuss challenges related to community employment. These local gatherings will occur in conjunction with the online presentations and will be a time for everyone to discuss questions related to the material.
Class size is limited. Register to attend the presentations being held at Lanterman with Ronna Kajikawa at 213.252.4976 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
